The HTC Bravo, touted for a MWC debut in Barcelona in February, has made its way into a dodgy spy shot thanks to the chaps at Omio.

The new handset, which is expected to measure up to the recently launched Nexus one, plus HTC's Sense UI and an optical trackpad rather than the ball one on the Google Nexus One.

"Bringing advancements like an optical trackpad for scrolling (getting one over on the Google phone’s old-school trackball), multi-touch for iPhone-esque pinching to zoom and the Sense user interface that we fell in love with on the HTC Hero," claim Omio who've supposedly seen it up close.

"Whilst Bravo may not be the final name for the device, we can confirm that the handset will be equipped with the latest Android build, the same 3.7-inch display and 5 megapixel autofocus camera currently seen on the Nexus One, and be available for free on a £35 per month tariff," add the phone comparison site.

We'll bring you more details when we have them.
